This is a new pet farm which my husband and I discovered in Letterkenny two weeks ago while holidaying with our 2 children. This farm was excellent value for money and the outdoor play area for kids was fantastic. They have an indoor area for birds, rabbites, guinea pigs, chipmunks and a large outdoor area which has pigs, bores, a lama. There is also a small tea room and the staff there were very nice and came out in the rain to show my children how to use the large tyre slide. I will definetly be going back and am delighted we found this attraction as we visit Letterkenny quite often.

I've been here a few times and have to say the play area is lovely although the sand pits are a bit disgusting now. The zip lining, trampolines and water slide are all favourites. We brought a picnic with us and after struggling to find somewhere to eat we were tortured by Wasps but worse than that was the big... More

Live not too far from Lurgy Brack Farm and have to say myself or the kids never get enough of this place... Great for a family day out. Would highly recommend

Visited here with a 10 month old and we knew he would be too young to get much out of it. The playground looked really good for children, but we were pretty disappointed by the farm. Some of the enclosures looked quite small and some of the animals looked in poor condition. Very reasonable entry fee but I wouldn't be... More

The smaller the children the more they will enjoy the Open Farm, I would guess. The impact the animals have on them depends on how hungry the animals are! We visited during the last two hours before closing and the animals were mostly asleep; they most likely had had their fill of visitor-offered feed by then. My children really liked... More

The car park and Entrance is layed out lovely but the farm is so runned down, Not a lot of animals and the play park equipment looks shabby and would need replaced. Everything looks old and worn! The sponge fake grass (or whatever you want to call it) that is placed around play area would also need replaced it's bumpy... More

This was found by accident while looking for things to do. It is reasonably priced and is a very clean address. The animals in here are not exactly rare or exotic but more of your less common to pretty shop variety. There is a small bird area with some parrots and cockatiels as well as other types of parakeet. There... More

The animals are confined in the smallest places and look neglected. Admission said 6 euro per adult and we were charged 18 euro. Everything is up hill, and there isn't many animals to see. School kids were running around unsupervised, and could easily have hurt themselves on the wiring of the badly manufactured wooden fences. Nice views from a distance... More

I took my very energetic 4 year old to lurgybrack as I had heard gd reports about it. it surpassed all expectations and between the inside and outside play areas there was so much to keep a lively toddler busy for hours! it is extremely reasonable and imaginative for all ages for kids (and adults!) the water slide, bouncing pillow...
